Charly Sinewan on his pan-American tour that will take him to Argentina, crosses a reten, this is a check-point erected by civilians against the cartels, and then passes the frontier to Guatemala, which now appears very modern compared to years ago.
tons of subtitles

I took this test: is the word invented or does it exist?


ESTE ES EL NIVEL ACEPTABLE PARA UNA PERSONA NATIVA


At 43% being correct, I like the fact that I never labeled an incorrect word as correct

I like that Pablo does his videos completely in Spanish and his primary focus is communication. He wants his audience to understand. He uses simple language and lots of gestures and a bit of repetition.

To me, Pablo exemplifies Schekhtam strategies in which one doesn't let linguistic competence limit meaningful communication. He's a native of Spain, so any deficiency in linguistic competence is not on his side of the street. Rather, he gives fantastic, implicit examples of using simple language, gestures and facial expressions to get a point across.

I messed around a bit with YouTube's Playback Speed feature since he sometimes demonstrates multiple circumlocutions to fortify his communication to maximize his viewer's understanding. One of the neat things about speeding up the video is that body language becomes more apparent and using that well is a skill in and of itself.
